|Weaving Made Kid Easy|
Need a rainy day activity that is fun, creative and a great way to work on those fine motor skills? Teaching your child to weave just may be the thing you need! My daughter (3.5 years of age) and I have spent the last few months working on this awesome activity together. In fact, the last few times that we worked on it, she got so good she needed little help from me!
Classified: Hard. This would be a great mommy and me activity for the preschool- kindergarten child. Older children may be more independent with the weaving.
What you need:
- Yarn- of all sorts and colors.
- A paper bowl.
What to do:
|Prepping the bowl.|
|Numbering made weaving so much easier for my 3.5 year old|
1. Chose a section of the spider web where you would like to begin and tie the first piece of yarn. I started off the this activity by teaching my daughter "the concept" of weaving.
|Started by Momma|
3. When the weaving is complete, and your circle is made, you can choose to leave it on the paper bowl or to take it off. I found that if you tie the last piece of yarn to each support yarn as you cut it off it holds quite nicely.

Once you and your child have made one- make another one. Each time the weaving should become easier!
